The Splash of Red Gala is taking place on October 28th, 2017 at The Glencoe Club located in Elbow Park. The event will be filled with an exciting silent and live auction, an unforgettable dinner provided by The Glencoe Club, dancing with the TR3 band as well as an impactful speech from an Avenue 15 alumni. This event is important to Boys & Girls Clubs of Calgary as it helps give our supporters and sponsors an inside look at one of Calgary’s biggest community issues, youth homelessness.
Details of the package Canada Rail Vacations is donating is as follows. This package can be customized to your specific dates of travel in April, May or October 2018.
Day One - Private Transfer to Banff
You’ll be picked up from your Calgary and area local accommodation and enjoy a private transfer to Banff, located in the heart of the Canadian Rockies. One night of Superior hotel accommodation is included (Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, Rimrock Resort or The Moose).
Day Two - Banff to Kamloops aboard the Rocky Mountaineer
The rail portion of your Canada Rail Vacation will begin aboard the Rocky Mountaineer train in their exquisite GoldLeaf Service glass dome car. From Banff, the train will glide west through the Canadian Rockies. The Rocky Mountaineer’s dome cars will provide you with uncompromising views of snow-packed peaks, tumbling mountain streams and earth-carving glaciers. After crossing the Continental Divide, you’ll enter British Columbia. The Spiral Tunnels, Rogers Pass and Glacier National Park, all noted landmarks, will add to the awe of your journey. The glacier-clad mountains give way to arid grassland hills of the Kamloops region. One night of accommodation in Kamloops is included in this package.
Day Three - Kamloops to Vancouver
Your Rocky Mountaineer train will continue west before turning south into the Fraser River Valley. With the return of the mountains, the landscape again changes dramatically. The Canadian Coast Mountains combine with thick fir forests and the charging Fraser River to create a spectacular setting. Along the way you’ll pass Hell’s Gate, a narrow canyon with sheer, towering walls that transform the Fraser River into a froth of surging rapids. Upon reaching Vancouver in the late afternoon, you can explore the city at your own pace. One night in one of our Superior hotels in Vancouver is included (Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, Fairmont Waterfront or Sheraton Wall Centre).
Day Four - Vancouver
Your tour ends upon check out of your hotel in Vancouver. The day is yours to enjoy Vancouver. Thank you very much for supporting Boys and Girls Clubs of Calgary.
